Roosevelt And Stalin: The Failed Courtship

By Robert Nisbet
Regnery Gateway, 1989
120 pp. $14.95

This essay, in tones reminiscent of anti-Soviet polemics of the early 1950s, presents Franklin D. Roosevelt's naïve belief that he could "personally handle" Stalin as a case study in support of the indictment of American liberalism for being less critical of the left-wing totalitarianism of enemies than of the right-wing authoritarianism of friends.
